Contex A/S has announced several new wide-format scanning solutions: the IQ scanner series, MFP2GO, and MFP Repro. The IQ scanner series includes a number of features that produce high image quality for 24- and 44-inch wide technical documents, maps, and drawings. Enhancing the users’ scanning workflow, the new MFP2GO lets customers turn their HP or Canon wide format printer into a copier, without the need for a PC. Additionally, Contex updated MFP Repro, a full-featured copy and scan solution for in-house production or Repro use.
Just under two feet wide, the IQ scanner is built for high-volume daily use. It is equipped with mapping features such as Adobe RGB, which enables colors to stand out. Image quality is also enhanced with Contex’s patented color-fringe removal (CFR) and 1200 dpi optical resolution. Gigabit network is standard in all IQ models, supporting transfer speeds up to 80 MB/second. These network-enabled scanners provide one-touch buttons that allow users to scan directly to a desired location. Contex’s All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) and magnetic document guides provide support for documents of unlimited lengths.
The MFP2GO is designed for office environments. The MFP2GO bundle includes a Contex HD, IQ, or SD scanner; high-stand; and a 10-inch touchscreen MFP2GO controller. The controller allows users to scan and share images via e-mail, copy, LAN, FTP, and USB. The USB port can connect to an iPad or any device that will import images as it would from a digital camera.
Contex’s MFP Repro can turn any large-format printer into a full-featured copy solution. Ideal for in-house production or repro use, the newly enhanced MFP Repro now features multi-page document support, full scanning options including file naming templates, as well as unlimited printer support, the company says. The Contex MFP Repro bundle includes a scanner, intuitive Nextimage Repro software, and a high stand.
